Prior to my injury, there was a way of life that I knew to be. Post-injury, I had to realize that I could still have that way of life, I just had to flow with it, if that may be a word. Meaning that some things did change but I didn’t change as a person. I was still the same guy, there were just some things I had to do differently. So, I do have a relationship now that is very significant to me in my life, and all that we do is just learn how to handle things and problems as we go. Sometimes, a lot of my friends, or you know we encounter things in study groups, different things like that, and we always say, most of us get to hide our problems. But they say Jeremy, “you don’t get to hide yours, yours is out in the open and everyone can see it coming.” And with that, in relationship to relationships, I couldn’t hide it. So, it was something that was evident, and it was out front, so there was basically the first thing that we had to deal with. She saw me coming in a wheelchair, and to this day it is so amazing, she says,” Jeremy because of your personality and your spirit, I never saw your wheelchair.”

Prior to my injury, there was a way of life that I knew to be. Post-injury, I had to realize that I could still have that way of life, I just had to flow with it, if that may be a word. Meaning that some things did change but I didn’t change as a person. I was still the same guy, there were just some things I had to do differently. So, I do have a relationship now that is very significant to me in my life, and all that we do is just learn how to handle things and problems as we go. Sometimes, a lot of my friends, or you know we encounter things in study groups, different things like that, and we always say, most of us get to hide our problems. But they say Jeremy, “you don’t get to hide yours, yours is out in the open and everyone can see it coming.” And with that, in relationship to relationships, I couldn’t hide it.
